Male Masturbation: 3 Things You Didn’t Know

If there is one thing that all males, boys or guys, know how to do, it is masturbation. This is something that is never new to them and why is it so is answered by one study that links how males urinate (touching their genitalia) to the early discovery of physical pleasure.  

When it comes to male masturbation, a great number of the population would claim they already know most of the facts about it. Certainly, you know that as early as a kid, a male has already discovered this physical pleasure, or you already know that there are toys for men to help them enjoy masturbation at a different level. Here is the catch, there are certain things you still do not know about male masturbation, and those are the things we like to share with you here.  

Male Masturbation: 5 Things You Didn’t Know 

1. There is no standard frequency for male masturbation 

According to Logan Levkoff, a Ph.D., and a sexologist expert, the frequency of masturbation per day or per week does not provide any implications to your health. He mentioned that whether or not you have sex or masturbate as much as you like and you still end up productive at work and healthy in your relationships, then be it. On the other side, if you are not that sexually active and just maintains sex or masturbation for once a month at most, but still able to have focus at work be normal with your routine, then be it. It is not how many times you masturbate, but how it fits into your life.  

2. It is not risk-free 

A certain number of people believe that masturbation is safe than sex when it comes to dealing with STDs and pregnancy. While most experts would agree to this, there are also studies that prove this claim is flawed in some aspects. Certainly, masturbation is low-risk, but it does not completely kill the chance of being safe; it still has some risks.  

Rough masturbation on a regular basis can cause skin irritation. This can be in a way where there is a forceful bending of the skin of the erect penis and this causes rupture on the chambers that are filled with blood. This can worsen to the point it develops into the penile fracture.  

3. Masturbation still does not equal the health benefits that sex provides 

According to Tobias S. Köhler, MD, MPH, and an associate professor at Southern Illinois University School of Medicine in Springfield, “not all orgasms are the same.”  

There are numerous studies that show sex can provide several health benefits such as lower blood pressure, pain relief, good heart rate, healthy prostate, etc., but they all do not apply to masturbation. Why is this so the answer is not clear. But they found out that the body responds differently during sex and masturbation and this includes the difference in the seminal make in these two activities.  

However, even with these results, masturbation is still proven to reduce risk in prostate cancer, provide more focus, and improves your mood.
